Last September, I met Sean, the Director of Public Programming at Eastern State Penitentiary. We were both participating in a talk at the Philadelphia History Museum about art programs involving Prisons.
After learning about Family Interrupted, Sean expressed interest in hosting one of our Mailboxes at Eastern State. We jumped at the opportunity, and this past week I collected a gigantic bag of responses from Eastern State.
Many thanks to Sean and his team, who are looking forward to keeping our mailbox on site for the for see-able future, and in doing so helping further this conversation about the impact of incarceration on families with the greater public.
